Is there any function which can be used by module to just investigate some given call path?

Assuming 2.6, call dump_stack(). If you want greater flexibility,
investigate show_trace() and friends.

Hope this helps,

I'm sitting right now on 2.4.22 - so no 2.6 nicities.
I actually wanted to have something like this on ppc - but ppc has no dump_stack() implemented.

Thanks any way.

[ Just checked 2.6 - ppc has dump_stack() now. Nice. It looks like all archs have implemented it in 2.6. Cool. ]
